KISWAH Exhibition in Abu Dhabi

It was second consecutive year that Abu Dhabi Islamic Bank has organized a great exhibition “Discovering Ka’aba” at Emirates Palace Hotel.
Looking at the Sitara (a part of Kiswah to guard the door of Ka’aba) at such a close distance was a great experience of my life.
The Sitara was 240-year-old dated back to Ottoman reign showcasing the high standard of craftsmanship of Muslim artisans who beautifully designed the Sitara with a number of Ayats (verses from the Holy Quran) and the names of first four Caliphs and companions of Prophet Muhammad (PBUH) with gold and silver threads.
I was accompanied Dr Waris H. Razvi and Ali visited the exhibition and had a great time.
Here are some of the pictures of the visit.
